Hi Tony, I made the user an administrator and still no luck.  In the 
event log I am getting a message that I should login:
    Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password

Which is what comes up when pserver auth requires a password.  When I 
try to login I get the authorization failed message below.  Also this 
may be a red herring but I am also seeing a successful login in the 
Security logs around the same time which I am not sure is coming from 
cvsnt or something else entirely.  It does consistently show up about 
the same time though.
